Great Pupkin dog; Photo - Geoff Badner for The Morning News

The Morning News the fabulous Great Pupkin event in Fort Greene. The Great Pupkin is an opportunity for dog owners to dress up their dogs in various Halloween finery (just as Halloween is an opportunity for girls to slut it up ), though writer Todd Levin notes, "There is something tragicomic about a dog in a sombrero...The psychological implications of a dog in costume might be horrible if they weren’t so completely adorable." And the most adorable photographs by Geoff Badner accompany Levin's essay. Gothamist can't help it - we love dogs, er, dog owners who dress up their dogs, as ghosts or Pooh.
